The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleJohn 15:23
He that hateth me, hateth my Father also.
] The hatred the
world bears to the followers of Christ, is interpretatively hatred
to Christ himself; and hatred to Christ himself, is no other than
hatred to his Father; and indeed, all the hatred that is shown by
the men of the world to Christ, to his Gospel, and to his faithful
ministers and followers, originally arises from that enmity, that is
naturally in the heart of every unregenerate man against God: now
since not only Christ, but the Father also, is hated by the world,
the children of God and disciples of Christ may sit easier under all
the resentment, frowns, and malice of the world.
